Angela is a merchant who sells essential items. Her business is prospering because her customer base has increased with the low prices and great service she offers. Angela is requesting a loan to buy milk products, baked goods, vegetables, cheeses, etc. Then she will be able to keep giving her customers good service. She is grateful for the support she is receiving, since her business is her family's main income source and she wants to continue supporting them this way.
